Mississippi Half Step-> Franklin's Tower, Mama Tried-> Mexicali Blues, It Must Have Been The Roses, Looks Like Rain, Stagger Lee, Passenger, Peggy-O, Lazy Lightning-> Supplication Jam-> Drums-> Jam-> Jack A Roe, Playin' In The Band-> Shakedown Street-> Drums-> If I Had The World To Give-> Playin' In The Band-> Around & Around
complete set 2; Master SBD Cassette > Cassette > DAT > CD-R > EAC > SHN, with plenty of AUD patches; via Art Cohen?
Ditto on that Phish Man Dan.....Bobby is totally there as far as my ears can tell Shakin'- it-down--unmistakable.....who knows...but the show is a fine one....Jack>Playin>Shakedown is a hot combo, as is the entire rest of the night, but this triple shot is the creamy filling for me--just classic Dead.

Too many cuts
This is a great show, but this recording has a lot of frustrating cuts. The recording begins just after Mexicalli Blues starts. Then end of Peggy O is cut off. Lazy/Supplication is missing, and the jam starts in the middle. There's another cut before drums, which is also missing.
That said, what we have of the second set is exciting. These are jams that break loose of the chord structure, similar to the jams of '72-to-'74.
This show also has a rarity, the third and last performance of If I Had the World to Give.

I hate to disagree, but I hear Bobby really prominently and clearly on Shakedown Street, both on backing vocals during the song and on rhythm guitar during the jam. Any comments on this??
(by the way, whatever it is, it's great!)

Explains the second set
Read this on a different site:
Take a careful look at that second-set list. Bobby got sick -- was missing at the start of the set (hence the start with a jam) appeared briefly to start Playing in the Band, vanished for the rest of the show, and then reappeared to finish the show. We pestered Healy the next night in Rochester: "What happened last night?"
"Aw...Bobby was sick as a dawg, throwing up in the dressing room..."

A fantastic second set. The quintessence of that Egpytian sound, which seemed to come out when they put Shakedown and Playin side by side. Like 11-23, very inspired stuff. Among 1978's best.

Very trippy and great jams...
In some ways Jerry sounds more like 1982-84 here than '78 but Keith gives them away - very wild sounding but tight not all over the place into jack a roe? Are you kidding??? not sure what they were up to that night but this is great and have to politely disagree with someone else that said fall of '78 are forgettable shows - this, cap theatre, and the eyeball popping 5 night run at winterland crushes it...

What a wacky show (especially for 1978)
A truly weird and wild show that kind of came out of nowhere, considering the fact that much of the rest of '78 was such a downer. The jam->Jack-a-Roe is one of the craziest set openers ever, and the Playin->Shakedown->World to Give sequence is probably the highlight of the entire year for me. Definitely a must-have, if only for the novelty factor.

I love the second set of this show. It's been one of my favorites for over 10 years. The whole set just scorches. Has a very nice jazzy feel and a rare (and in my opinion, the best version of) "World to Give".
